you are beautiful - body positive art- flavia bernardes art


Yes you. The you you are now, not later.

Not when you get the guy (or gal).

Not when you get the job, get published or get laid.

And certainly not when you lose 10 pounds.


You are beautiful. Now.


You don't need to "fit” into those jeans. Clothes are supposed to fit you, not the other way around.

There's nothing wrong with you. You are not broken. You are not here to be fixed.

There's nothing wrong with your hair, the color of your skin, the size of your ass, or the shape of your boobs.


You are beautiful. You are worthy. And you count.




You have the right to feel beautiful, to feel seen, to feel like you matter.

Because you know what?

You do.

And you deserve something that represents that.


Know someone who needs to know how beautiful she is? Don’t just tell her.

Here's what the process looks like:

  • you buy your painting here and once the order has gone through, I'll send you a confirmation email. 
  • you reply to that with a picture that you love and want me to paint from. 
  • we set up a 20-minute kick off meeting - where we can talk and I take notes to make sure I completely understand who you are as a person before I get to work. I don't want to paint just any portrait. I want to paint something that is truly meaningful to you and that requires knowing who you are.
  • the full aesthetics plan - where you can look at sketches and studies for your portrait painting and talk about the process. Because this isn't supposed to be a hassle. It's supposed to be a pleasurable experience for you.
  • pictures of the entire process + a complimentary short video - so you can get a sneak peek at the behind the scenes and be fully aware of what's going on with your artwork.
